William Henry Margetson LFB

Artist of the Month for July LFB Front

Artist of the Month for July LFB Back
Here is the little fat book page that I made for my sister Elise's Artist of the Month Swap. This month she did a spot light on William Henry Margetson. I think the ladies in the group were better able to tackle this one because the focus of alot of his art is what we all like: vintage ladies in hats with ribbons, and everything is so full of light and beauty. Quite the extreme from last month's Frida Kahlo. :o) I enjoyed working on it last night after the art party at Lori's. I was inspired AND in a time crunch because I forgot it was due tomorrow!
I used a real mirror on the piece and enlarged the frame of the original work to fit it on. I cut out the reflection from a second print out to glue on the mirror. I used CTMH's liquid glass to fill in the vase to make it look glossy and glass-like. The lady is cut out and pop-dotted to stand up off the page and outlined in a glimmer dust gelly roll pen. Other accents include tiny pearls, eyelash fibers, brads, and prima flowers.
